Our Staff


General Manager

Sam was born and raised in Whitehorse. Started riding at the mountain the day it opened. Started volunteering with the Canadian Ski Patrol in 2000. Patrol leader from 2005 to 2011. Worked also in maintenance and grooming during that time. Operations Manager from 2011 to 2020. He is proud to continue to serve the community as we continue to make Mt. Sima the fantastic destination ski hill it is. Looks forward to seeing you out on the slopes!


Office Manager

Bri originally grew up in Montreal – learning to ski on the icy slopes of eastern hills around Quebec and Vermont. Winding up in the Yukon for the first time in 2006, she fell in love with the north – both winter and summer, and eventually joined the Sima team in the fall of 2020. While some might think she’s a glutton for punishment, she loves the balance of deep diving into spreadsheets, crunching numbers, along with a few laps of buttery tele turns whenever she can get out on the hill!


Guest Services Manager

Even though Jen is a Yukon transplant she's no newcomer to the long winters after living in a northern fly-in community with her pup Porter. You'll find the two wandering around in the woods and always out on new adventures. As a people person with a passion for the outdoors, she is ready to welcome everyone to Mount Sima!

Megan Simpson

Snow School Manager

Megan is our Australian transfer to the Yukon. Megan and her family moved to the Yukon to connect with wilderness and experience the wonders the great white north has to offer. After spending 2 years in Saskatchewan and Alberta in 2014-16 Megan and her Husband have always had a dream to return to Canada with their family. In 2023 this dream became a reality and they sold up everything back home to make the move! Megan is passionate about providing quality customer service and loves to meet new people. This season Megan's goal is to try new things including putting on her very first set of skis!


Food and Beverage Manager


Outdoor Operations Manager


Head of Ski Patrol and Mountain Safety

Kirstie has been a volunteer patroller with the Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP) since Mount Sima opened. She took on management of the Mount Sima ski patrol staff in 2019 and works in tandem with the CSP alpine patrol leader. All patrollers at Mount Sima are trained to the same exacting first aid and rescue standards and work as a cohesive team on all days the hill is open to the public.


Avalanche/Search and Rescue dog

K9 search and rescue and avalanche dog (in training) Kipper joined the Mount Sima team two years ago. He is a wilderness search-validated dog and will be in training as an avalanche dog this winter. He is on the hill most days with his handler, a patrol team member.


Marketing Coordinator

Originally moving to the Yukon for dog sled guiding, she joined the Sima family her first summer there in 2014. Even though she's worked other jobs over the years, she just couldn't keep away from Mt Sima. Her two passions, the outdoor industry and graphic design, come together nicely in this new position. Even though she's mostly hidden in her little corner office, she does get out on the hill whenever she can!
